Welcome to the Drawing Room

Hello! I assume you are here desiring an audience with Lord Heartless? He is out at the moment but I anticipate his return at any time. Until then, find a comfortable chair, settle in, and enjoy a spot of tea. Browse through the available reading material, learn what you can of the heartless duke, and decide if you really want to meet him. Please leave your calling card in the form of a comment.

It was lovely to see you! Please stop by again.

***Please BEWARE*** If you have yet to read Heartless, certain aspects of the story may be inadvertently spoiled for you here. Please take care while exploring.

Re-Releasing Heartless ~ Step 2: Review Copies

My final read-through is complete and Heartless has been sent off to get formatted for Kindle, so now it's time to get busy with the pre-publication promotion. I owe e-copies to a few people from over a year ago, lovely people who volunteered to beta read. One of those lovely readers will get a paperback edition—I have yet to select the winner. That's neither here nor there, however.

Review Copies....

For one part of my pre-publication promotion plans, I am willing to send e-copies of Heartless to anyone willing to post an honest review (negative is fine as long as it's honest). I do require that you indicate in your review that you received a free copy from me, the author, for the purpose of providing an honest review (this is also a requirement of the FTC). I have no preference in regard to where the review appears, whether it's a blog, Goodreads, Amazon, B&N, or any of the other sites out there that cater to the book-loving world. I also have no requirements as to the number of blog readers your review blog has. Everyone is eligible. However, I reserve the right to refuse anyone's request for any reason whatsoever. I find it highly unlikely that I will refuse anyone's request, but just so we're clear.  

If you're interested in a copy to review, please comment on this blog post with your email and preferred eBook format. (I need your email so I can send you your copy. I will not sell your email address, share it, add it to my mailing list, or otherwise misuse it. If you are uncomfortable typing it below, you can email me your request at jaimeygrant {at} yahoo [dot] com.)

Your eBook choices are:

  • PDF (Adobe, but works with many eReaders) 
  • EPUB (Nook, Kobo) 
  • PRC (Kindle) 

If there's another format you prefer, indicate it in your comment and I'll see what I can do. Review copies will be sent out right before Heartless is enrolled in KDP Select.* The exact date will be announced here when I know it. After it's enrolled, I won't be allowed to give copies away.

So get those requests in! If you use an EPUB format eReader, I strongly urge you to take advantage of this review copy offer. That way, you'll get a 3-month jump on the availability of this title. I will update this post when this offer is no longer available.

For those who purchased a copy of Heartless in the past, paperback or eBook, I have good news for you. Stay tuned for my follow-up blog post to find out how you can get an e-copy for FREE.

*I will explain the details of my decision to enroll Heartless in KDP Select in a future post....

Edited 11/2/2012 to add: I am no longer accepting requests for review copies of Heartless. Thank you so much for your support! ♥

I purchased this book in paperback and fell in love. When I was switching some of my favorite reads to ebook (so I could revisit them regularly without having to guard over my treasures with lock and key from my children) I had thought Heartless was already in available in ebook and so donated it to my local library. I knew they did not have Heartless yet and wanted to share your story with others.
Since then, I have been anxiously awaiting the re-release of Heartless in ebook. I would love love love to get my heart and hands on a copy and send out a review on goodreads.

I enjoyed your fantasy short. I'm willing to try your regency. How soon would you need the review ready?

Please send me a .pdf to amy keeley a t ver izon dot net. Thanks!

Jaimey Grant said...

I'm really pleased with the turnout so far. Thank you, all, for volunteering! I've made a note of everyone's email and eBook preference.

As for Amy's question of when I need the review, that's up to each of you. I'm not placing a requirement on how quickly you read and review the book.

Thank you again! ♥

Regency books are my favorite books! I would gladly read and review.
PDF would be my prefered format.

Jaimey Grant said...

I've added you to my list, Bethany. Thank you for your interest. :O)

I've formatted the PDF edition and after one final check for glaring formatting errors, I'll send this version to those of you who've requested a PDF. I'm not the one formatting the PRC or EPUB editions so those will be delayed until next week.

Thank you, all, again for volunteering to read and review Heartless!
